Mercedes has a lot of sweet new toys to play with right now, from the new G-Wagen to the AMG GT four-door, but it hasn't forgotten about its other toys, including one of its oldest. It announced some minor updates for its SLC-Class roadster for 2019, a car that hasn't seen a complete redesign since 2012. The standard SLC300 gets some new standalone options, such as ambient lighting, blind spot monitoring, and an analog dash clock, but the SLC43 gets the good stuff. It gets a power boost. The 2019 Mercedes-AMG SLC43 now makes 385 horsepower from its twin-turbocharged V6. That's an increase of 23 horsepower over last year's model. This also helps bring it closer to the old V8-powered version. No torque changes were mentioned, so the engine likely still makes 384 pound-feet of torque or thereabouts. In addition to the healthy power boost, the SLC43 also gets standard dual-zone automatic climate control and LED headlights with adaptive high beams. Pricing for the little Mercedes roadster has not been announced. Odds are that the pricing won't change much from the $49,395 for the SLC300 and $62,345 for the SLC43. Availability hasn't been revealed either. But it's safe to say the updated models will appear on lots by the end of the year.Automotive Cars News,mercedes, amg, slc, 2019, cars, roadster, 43, car, review, interior, slk, biturbo, g63, suv, drive, sound, benz, mercedes slc, 2018, mercedes slc updated for 2018, update, mercedes-benz, test drive, v6, mercedes benz, new, convertible, automobile, premiere, gt, como, funny, scoope, truck, launch, 4x4, sport, carros, youtube, autos
The elusive 2020 Cadillac CT5 luxury sports sedan has once again been spotted by a spy photographer. This time, we get to see it from all angles, whereas last time we only saw it from the front. It still has quite a bit of fake body work, and it's very clear Cadillac still hopes you'll think this is a Charger, from the big hood scoop to the fake full-width taillights. Digging past those misdirects, we can find some new details about the car. First, the car's front lighting has developed further. There are production-ready headlights fitted that appear to have some sort of LED illumination. These production lights also fit the shape we saw on the last prototype, so they'll end high up on the body, extending slightly horizontally toward the grille. There's still a section that extends back along the fender, seeming to bridge the gap between current Cadillacs and the Escala concept from which this car takes inspiration. Another addition are the vertical LED accent lights. This is another trademark feature of both current Cadillacs and the Escala, but they were absent from the last prototype we saw. We also get a look at some of the grille's details. Instead of slats, this CT5 has a plastic mesh of small rectangles. The pattern is reminiscent of brickwork. These photos also give us our first look at the back of the CT5. It looks like a fairly typical Cadillac. It's much more conservative than the front end. There are some angular cutouts in the bumper to allow exhaust gases out. The taillights have the current Cadillac look with the top curving over the rear fender. We can't tell if there will be a horizontal element like on the Escala, due to the fake lights. We're expecting the CT5 to be shown sometime next year in time for the 2020 model year. Odds are it will use off-the-shelf Cadillac engines including the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, naturally aspirated 3.6-liter V6, and the twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6. Now that Cadillac has revealed its twin-turbo 4.2-liter V8, we'll be interested to see if that shows up in a future CT5-V.Automotive Cars News,cadillac ct5, cadillac, 2020 cadillac ct5, cadillac ct5 coupe, 2020 cadillac, cadillac ct5 review, cadillac ct5 2020, cadillac xt5, cadillac ct5 2017, 2019 cadillac ct5, cadillac ct5 commercial, carengine, 2019 cadillac, cadillac ct5 2018, 2020 cadillac escala suv, cadillac ct5 2016, 2020 cadillac escalade, car news, 2020 cadillac escala, cadillac escala, cadillac ct5 2019, cadillac ct5 spy shots, spy shots, auto car magz, 2020, 2020 escala, 2020 cadillac xt5 spied, top auto news, cadillac ct5 release date, spy, xt5, acrmagz, exterior, autocarmagz, suv, review, cadillac ct5 price, new, 2019 cadillac ct6, cadillac escalade esv
Up front, the new Sonata looks much wider than the current model. Part of this is due to the headlights being moved to sit inline with the top of the grille, as opposed to slightly above on the current model.HOT NEWS 2020 Hyundai Sonata shows fresh shape among competitors Automotive Cars News And while we can't see it clearly, the grille will likely have a similar shape to that of the current model and other Hyundais. The fenders also wrap around the top of the car more, further contributing to the car's wide stance. The profile of this new Sonata is different, too. It's a bit more traditional in how the engine compartment area doesn't blend into windshield as much. The current Sonata blends the engine, passenger and trunk compartments more. There's also a curve to the bottom of the greenhouse on the new car that lends the car a more graceful, less upright appearance. There is still a fastback look to the rear of the Sonata, but it's stretched out more, again helping the car look less upright. This is the first time we've seen the next-generation Hyundai Sonata, but it does look as though it's pretty far in development. What we can see of it appears to be production ready. As such, we probably won't have long to wait to see the car revealed. It will probably show up sometime next year in time for the 2020 model year.Automotive Cars News,hyundai sonata, hyundai, sonata, 2018 hyundai sonata, hyundai sonata 2018, 2019 hyundai sonata, hyundai sonata 2019, 2016 hyundai sonata, 2018 hyundai sonata sport, 2018 sonata, 2018 hyundai sonata review, autonews, supercars,2020 Hyundai Sonata, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Colors, 2020 Hyundai Sonata For Sale, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Horsepower, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Interior, 2020 Hyundai Sonata sedan, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Limited, 2020 Hyundai Sonata se, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Msrp, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Price, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Release Date, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Review, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Specs, 2020 Hyundai Sonata Sport, New Hyundai Sonata 2020, new cars buy,
The 2019 Hyundai Veloster is a revitalized version of a type of car many mainstream automakers are slowly giving up on entirely: the affordable sports car. Rivals like the Honda Civic Si and Volkswagen GTI spring to mind, but, generally speaking, car companies crank out more and more SUVs and crossovers while this once thriving segment dwindles in numbers. That's too bad, because it takes only a few minutes behind the wheel to realize the crossover and SUV crowd are missing out on a lot of driving fun.
Styling is subjective, though we'd say Hyundai's design team did an excellent job transferring the Veloster's unique three-door design into a revitalized new shape. The 2019 Veloster is 0.8-inches longer and 0.4-inches wider than before, though the most noticeable changes include the large cascading front grille, along with a cleaner and more aggressive look at the rear. The new version looks like a cross between a sport coupe and, say, a high-end sneaker. It stands out, and that's a good thing in a world ruled by crossovers.
Once again, the two doors on the passenger side add a degree of practicality compared to a traditional coupe, eliminating the need to climb over a folded front seat to gain access to the rear seats. The hidden door handle helps the third door blend neatly into the bodywork. Hyundai says rear headroom has increased by 0.6 inches, though it gets snug back there for anyone close to 6 feet in height. Skip the optional sunroof, since it takes up a few precious millimeters that could be better used for the craniums of rear occupants. Cargo space measures in at 19.9 cubic feet with the folding 60/40-split rear seatback in place.
Like the exterior, the cabin gets a thorough redo for the 2019 model year. The overall control layout is logical and getting accustomed to the touchscreen infotainment is quick and painless. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility are standard, a major plus point for tech-savvy car buyers in this segment. Some cabin plastics are hard and look cheap, especially the panels on the upper half of the doors, exactly where you'd rest an arm with the windows down during a sunny summer drive.
But it's the dynamic bits that make the biggest contribution. Rather than removing sport-tuned (i.e. more expensive parts) from the car to keep the price low, the Veloster receives mechanical upgrades that help sharpen the handling and provide a more connected feel to the road.
These modifications include a new multi-link rear suspension fitted to the entire model range. This replaces a more mundane torsion-beam setup used in the first-generation model. Key suspension elements are also crafted out of aluminum to trim weight and sharpen driving dynamics. Aluminum knuckles in the front suspension alone shed 5.3 pounds at each corner, according to Hyundai's calculations. A similarly targeted use of aluminum in the rear suspension – which is shared with the Elantra GT – helps trim an additional 4.2 pounds from each corner. With suspension components, every ounce makes a difference in terms of handling dynamics.Automotive Cars News,MW, car, truck, suv, cuv, crossover, auto, automobile, vehicle, motor trend, review, drive, first drive, video, hyundai, veloster, turbo, dct, dual clutch, manual, b&m racing, short throw shifter, performance, r-spec, hatchback, texas, austin, michelin, tires, hot hatch, veloster turbo,
